“One of the best hotels in Luberon”
Reviewed 30 May 2011

We stayed at Auberge La Feniere in May 2011 and found it awesome. The grounds are magnificent, lots of rolling acres of olive trees, cherry trees (you can even eat cherries from those trees), the landscaping is excellent. There is quite a nice pool on the grounds which, in itself, is excellent, with great landscaping, inviting clean water and good-quality chairs and chaise-longs. The atmosphere is great too. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The service both in the hotel and in the restaurant (also magnificent) is impeccable. You can drive to the village of Lourmarin (5 minutes from the hotel) and check it out (nice, cute little streets with cafes, boutiques and the Provence atmosphere), come back and have a relaxed aperitif before dinner either by the pool (we were actually there by ourselves and the helpful staff served our drinks and chasers right there) or in many tents set up on the property. And then go to dinner. It is very quiet at night, you are sure to get a good night sleep on fresh linens and in good beds. One other plus - from the Auberge you can make daily trips to numerous charming villages that are within 15-25 minutes, spend a day exploring them and come back for a wonderful swim, aperitifs and dinner. Awesome. Would strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking in that area.

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor my first comment has to be that my experience of the staff at the Auberge la Feniere is that they are friendly, helpful and accomodating, and not at all how others describe. And I should add that my husband and I are English and speak virtually no French...this was not a problem at all! Escaping from the cold and rain of England we enjoyed a perfect Provencal break at the Auberge at the beginning of March. Admittedly the glorious sunshine helped but our surroundings could not have been better. Our room (Collette suite in a separate building to the main hotel) was clean, spacious, modern in decor (although retaining certain original features of the converted farm building) and of an excellent temperature. The bathroom was large with a huge walk in shower and separate roll top bath. Very luxurious. My only slight complaint would be that there was perhaps a lack of natural light in the room, although it should be noted that this is often a gripe of mine in hotel rooms and in this case is probably to be expected given the nature of the building (very old with small windows). There was however plenty of lighting in the room and bathroom! The Auberge has a Michelin starred restaurant where we have dined previously, but this was closed at the time of our visit (opens 1 April). We ate both nights, Saturday and Sunday, in the Bistro, which serves excellent if fairly simple home cooked fare, served with finesse by top quality staff. The wine list deserves special mention. My husband (the wine snob) found everything to his satisfaction. Lots of interesting local (excellent) wines and the very helpful (and knowledgable) wine waiter/maitre d who was able to discuss most of the wines with my husband added to the experience. Breakfast both mornings was simply delicious and worth staying over for! The proximity of the Auberge to one of the nicest villages in the Luberon/Provence only adds to its charms. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place and I would definitely hope to return in the future.

Spent three days at the Auberge as part of a longer stay in Nice. The location is ideal to explore the many beautifull villages in the area. Our room was in the main house with great views of the gardens and the Durance Valley in the distance.The staff were very friendly and Madame Sammut made us very welcome upon our arrival. We had lunch once in the bistro and three evening meals in the main restaurant,all excellent. After a day out in the car sightseeing so nice to return there for a glass of wine in one of the tented seating areas in the garden . Very enjoyable stay and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Nice. We will be returning.

Booked here to stay for 3 nights, looking forward to high class hospitality.
Greeted by sultry unfriendly staff and no offer of help with luggage.
Bedroom in main building was average with very small bathroom. Very hot on entering and aircon completely useless for whole stay resulting in 3 sleepless nights. (Could not leave windows open due to mosquitoes).
No fridge in room, no safe, tiny TV with virtually no sound.
Inadequate wardrobe space - no shelves or drawers (had to leave all small stuff in suitcase).
Pool area was nice but had no shade whatsoever - no umbrellas - hard loungers - no poolside service.
Main restaurant was nice with attentive service - starter and sweet were very good, but main course was very basic and disappointing. Ate in Bistro following night where food was very average.
Breakfast on terrace was basic continental in good style, but served by the ever present miserable staff.

Really struggled to find late availability in the area for a one night family stop. Despite the highish price thought it worth a try as the food could be interesting.

The first impression of this place is that the staff are incredibly disinetested, particularly in a family of slightly weary travellers. The first impression is of a fairly typical but not remarkable provencal Mas, gardens neat but not exceptional with a few rather awkwardly placed tented seating areas. The reception is more Paris than Luberon with a darkened almost nightclub ambience. This point you realise they are much more interested in bar and restaurant clientele.

The lack of interest from the staff was a theme of the visit, despite the fact that the seemed to be incredibly numerous. We sat by the pool in the evening which was not heated and so quite cold and were not offered a drink. We ate in the bistro rather than the restaurant gastronomique and were charged about €200 for a very simple meal for six, three of which were basic children's suppers. My wife wanted some sautee potatoes with her fish rather than cous cous and this sent them into a complete lather and delayed the service by about twenty minutes. When they arrive they were soggy and the fish which she asked to be cooked quite simply had what I can only describe as a barbecue sauce with a strong taste as if it had come pre made. The wine was good and not particularly overpriced at €25 for a bottle of local Rose.

Breakfast was served on an empty terrace of about twenty tables and despite the usual overstaffing, they left us sitting for about fifteen minutes before serving. Not good for a hungry family. On the positive side the rooms were spacious and clean.

the final tally for a family of six with a supper and breakfast was bout €900 Euros and frankly I got better service at the Novotel. I would not stay there again mainly because I felt unwelcome and I know that you can do a lot better elsewhere. On a general note I would suggest to other travellers that they avoid the high end hotels of the Luberon and look a little further afield.
